Because the R/C mobiles crane only lasts for 5 1/2 hours before needing a recharge, I thought it needed supplimenting with a second to keep exhibition interest.

Instead of building a duplicate, I've made a 'steam' rail crane, narrow gauge, on 14mm track which I've just got working. 

It has all the functions - slew, derrick, hoist and travel, and with a 1000mAh lipo, it should last a full day.

There are still a couple of details to add to finish it off.

Giles,


Thanks for the great video!

How about putting some timbers across the flatbed to help keep the spool from rolling on you...just a thought.

Thank you Gents!

Yes - the lorry normally has a timber cradle exactly for this purpose, but I lent it out, and haven't refitted it yet!

This shows the mounting of the hoist motors for the derrick and hoist. 

They are 'Flip' type gearmotors with a small drum mounted directly on each shaft. 

The slew is a normal gearmotor, vertically mounted behind.

Hiding underneath all that junk is a slip-ring, which allows 360 degree plus rotation of the crane on the frames. 

The only power conducted through is two ways for the traction motor, 
which is yet another 6v gearmotor, second axle driven by the first via a gear-train of laser-cut gears.
